  • AP mode desirable, not required
  • WEP and WPA supported
  • Atheros preferred because it's GPL policy

Serial interfaces (UART)

  • Three serial interfaces are required
  • Console
  • A-GPS or GPS
  • GSM/GPRS

Accelerometer

  • 2x accelerometer required
  • Could support interrupt while suspend or power save mode
  • 3 axis sensing

A-GPS

  • GPS chipset receiver and antenna
  • Sensitivity at Antenna port: -157 dBm tracking on chipset specification
  • LNA and SAW filter for maximum interference protection
  • Cold start time to first fix: 40 sec typical at -130 dBm, 60 sec max
  • Must support GPL for Assist-GPS function with open API
  • Industry quality GPS
  • Could fit in GTA01 GPS area on the PCB

GPS Antenna Performance

  • Antenna is passive and internal; 15 mm x 15 mm ceramic patch is nominal design
  • Antenna LNA and SAW filter are required to meet GPS performance
  • 15 mm square ground plane (minimum 1 mm ground border around patch) (TBA)
  • There will be one external GPS antenna connector (MMCX)
  • C/N ratio should higher than 35 on production testing

Buttons

  • Touch screen over LCD is primary data entry mechanism
  • Two “hard” buttons: Power button (on side of Neo1973) is a mechanical switch actuated by a plastic pushbutton in a hole in the housing. Aux (911) button on the top of the device, All two of these buttons, when pushed by the operator, are binary inputs (on/off or pressed/not pressed) to the software. The effect of each button is determined by the application software in the device
  • Buttons may need to be backlit
  • 50000 cycles on hardware specification

Sound outputs

  • Speaker in box (need good volume and acoustic behavior in noisy environments)

  • Power/Aux switch must be backlit
  • Switch controls whether device is running or suspended by presses of the switch
  • Switch does not shut off the power; it only suspends/resumes the device
  • Internal Li-Ion or Li-Polymer battery is included. This battery supplies standby power to the device eliminates the rebooting of the device when local power is again reapplied. Battery is 1200 ma-hr.
  • Battery life (Approximation) Ideal/Target Standby time 150-200 Hrs (GSM) Talk time (Backlight off) Up to 4 hrs(GSM)
